Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 12752
2.2.16 compilation glitches
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
Two of them so far (and missing links to linux and asm in kernel-headers):
New aacraid won't compile if current (from compiling kernel) kernel
headers not installed. In Makefile in drivers/scsi/aacraid:
# Remember that we're doing a chdir one level lower, so we need an extra
Note the two -I/usr/src/linux/... includes. Those should be
-I$(TOPDIR)/include (unnecessary and bogus, since installed kernel headers
is not the same as for currently complied kernel, them are from previous
kernel at least) and -I$(TOPDIR)/drivers/scsi.
This new driver is in redhat's patches.
And the second one. Latest gcc from rawhide (2.96-20000606)
won't compile kernel anymore, it fails on math emulation package
on i386. I know about issues with compiling kernels with gcc,
but all my previous kernels was compiled by latest gcc (at time
of compiling) release from rawhide, and so far all was ok.
Now (as I don't need math emu on 486 and up) I can just edit
config files (kernel-2.2.16-i?86.config etc) and change math emu
I believe this to be fixed in Pinstripe; re-open if
Ok, this two glitches was gone away.
Math ok, and aacraid also. This issue should be closed now.
(With others remains, like e.g. problems with memcpy() and new gcc,
problems with usage of preprocessor in kernel and new gcc again;
but those are another stories...)
